This tool was developed within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the European Centre for Modern Languages and the European Commission


Principal function(s): Game apps

Prodigy is an online, role-playing game designed to help children practice and improve their maths and English. In the game, students create a wizard character and embark on an adventure by solving maths and English problems to defeat monsters and earn rewards. Prodigy covers mathematical topics such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and geometry, as well as many grammar topics regarding English. The game adjusts to the player's level and progress, making it a personalized learning experience. Evaluation: A tool that uses online games to make learning maths fun and entertaining, to which English is now added. Prodigy can be used as a complementary resource to make the learning process engaging for younger students. It can prove valuable when used for 20 to 30 minutes a day, although it may be problematic to uncritically gamify students’ learning process, as it may even promote video game addiction and little focus on real learning. Prodigy provides reliable research articles assessing its positive impact on students’ language learning process. It can be used in different ways by teachers, students, and also parents.

Cost: Free + premium plans available
